Frightening fact of the century …

The population of the world is increasing at a rate of over FIVE MILLION per month. This means that within the next twenty years our requirement for FOOD, WATER, and FUEL will be around 50% more than we are currently using.

Every country in the world needs to address this problem because if it doesn’t the consequences for us all will be far worse than we could ever imagine.

I agree. And thanks for the stats. I can't see even bringing someone into this crazy world.

that is an alarming rate. Part of the problem I see in my country is that too many are having children for the sole purpose of getting additional public assistance benefits.

Mother Earth will take care of the increase and will balance the numbers.This may be Cold...but she will do what it takes to save herself. Dang...I don't blame her.
Oh...this just my humble opinion/belief.:)

A very alarming fact indeed. And the worst possibility, I think this crisis could lead to wars. Wars for food and energy. Maybe I just imagine too far, but who knows?
